Michelle Obama - Catholic Church? Please God No

I just caught a 30 second glimpse of Michelle Obama giving a talk in Soweto on AIDS. Nothing wrong with that in and of itself (unless she is promoting condoms which seems to be the world's only answer in this hedonistic age, even though it promotes promiscuity and so the spread of disease and infidelity).

The church she was speaking at is called Regina Mundi (Queen of the World). I purposefully haven't looked on the net to see if it's a Catholic Church. I assume it is.

If you get the chance watch the footage online, on tonight's news.

You will see what I call a roller-disco church. It has the spirituality of a KFC Bargain Bucket. Everything about it screams modernism: the art, the seating, the building. It is just awful. And no I do not mean it inspires awe. It wouldn't inspire the lukewarm, it might just inspire and insipid worldliness, it may inspire people to stay at home and watch TV. It certainly would not inspire belief in the Real Presence of Our Lord and God Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

I just hope beyond hope that it isn't a Catholic Church. If it is, and it probably is as there's not many others that use Latin titles, then it - in and of itself - explains what is wrong with the Church.

God help us all.

  1. You are doing Our Lady of Soweto a great disservice, please look up the history of this amazing church and its vibrant congrgation.

  2. "Vibrant" leaves me cold. Was the crucifixion "vibrant"? Or the Last Supper? The 'church' looks like a roller disco with all the spirituality of a roller disco.

    This is why people no longer believe Christ is truly present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

    Just my opinion of course... but I won't be grabbing a tambourine any time soon.

  3. That's why it's full for services then?
    And yes the Cruxifiction was vibrant with emotion.

  4. A "gay" disco may be full. doesn't justify its existence.
